Formula 1 funds students to increase diversity in motorsport

Formula 1 has launched a series of scholarships and apprenticeships for under-represented groups in a bid to increase the sport’s diversity. F1 will fund the studies and some living expenses of 10 students from minority groups across six universities. F1 chairman Stefano Domenicali said: “Formula 1 is a global sport with fans across the world. The move comes in the same week as Lewis Hamilton published a report with 10 recommendations aimed at increasing diversity in UK motorsport. Among its recommendations was improving access to apprenticeships and scholarship programmes for black students. Domenicali said the Hamilton Commission report “shows the dedication to addressing these issues across F1”.
